THE Cyberpunk 2077 the sequel, currently named Orion, is a complete mystery. Other than the fact that it’s in development, we know almost nothing about the project. One thing we do know is that developer CD Projekt Red is seriously considering introducing multiplayer into the mix this time around.

Multiplayer was originally planned for the 2020 open-world first-person shooter, but due to the disastrous launch of the gamethe team had to mobilize fully to put out the numerous fires raging in the neon-filled streets of Cyberpunk 2077The night city. As a result, whatever multiplayer CDPR was cooking in the development oven I had to take it out and cool it so that the game itself could reach a playable state, which the developers executed with aplomb. With Cyberpunk 2077 finished and the studio is moving other projects– which includes a sequel to the 2020 game – CDPR has multiplayer on its mind again.
CDPR “considers” multiplayer for Cyberpunk 2077
In an interview with Reuters, CDPR co-CEOs Adam Badowski and Michal Nowakowski spoke briefly about the myriad other games the studio is currently in development. Neither gave many details about these plans, but both confirmed that the Cyberpunk 2077 The sequel is currently “in conceptual phase”, and it is expected to have around 80 developers working on it by the end of the year. Nowakowski also said that the company is “considering including multiplayer elements” in the game. Cyberpunk 2077 suite, but again he did not clarify this statement. He highlighted one thing the team is studying: how to leverage the power of AI.
“We think (artificial intelligence) is something that can help improve some game production processes, but it doesn’t replace people,” Nowakowski said. This sounds good, but only time will tell how AI will be used in the company’s games in the future.

Badowski and Nowakowski’s comments on multiplayer echo CDPR’s position in October 2022, when the company revealed its plans to introduce multiplayer in its upcoming games, of which there are five in the works that we know. It’s unclear exactly what form multiplayer will take when it arrives in the Polish studio’s in-development games, but at least we know it’s real and (potentially) coming. Let’s just hope that, as CD Projekt Red already promisedits developers will not have to make any effort to make everything happen.
